Coconut Flour Substitute for BTF Mix

After reading the entire blog, someone had asked about using lupin flour as a sub for the coconut flour. Just an FYI that I used 1/2 cup lupin flour and 1 cup coconut flour when I made a 12x batch and it's working out great! I also did a 1:1 sub of the protein powder with pea protein powder and you can't taste any peas or coconut. Ouis, this stuff is fantastic!

glad you like it grammypat! I also have used some lupin flour and pea protein in my prep and I like it a lot. AND it does not taste of peas nor beans!

How does using lupin flour, etc., change the nutritional counts?

It increases the amount of fiber and protein but exactly by how much, I don't know. When using lupin flour, it is not necessarily a 1:1 replacement. I thought I read you can replace it up to 30% of the regular flour called for in recipes. It has more fiber than coconut flour, and definitely more protein than coconut flour.

Exchanges for 12X BTF

I used the same recipe as Ouis' original for the 12x (posted on Gina's other thread for large quantities) except where it called for 1.5 cups of coconut flour, I subbed 1/2 cup lupin flour and 1 cup coconut flour, and instead of 1 cup of whey protein powder, I used 1 cup of pea protein powder. My cinnamon muffins have turned out very light in texture and taste wonderful! Hope this helps Brendajm.

If you do not have lupin flour, I use 3/4 cup almond flour and 3/4 cup coconut flour instead of 1 1/2 cups coconut flour. Also, there is no coconut taste at all.

I made Gina's donut holes, adding a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon, and!

They taste like the donuts covered with powdered sugar.

They tasted way better after cooling completely, and I got 35 donut holes.

Great recipe.

I had a new cake pop maker.

Love this. As did DH.

I made breaded chicken strips last night. I used a cup of BTF mix and spiced it up nicely with several of my favourite spices and herbs.

Then I dredged the chicken in beaten egg and did a quick shake in the bag with the mix. I dredged again in egg and re-coated again with the mix. There was enough mix to dredge two very large chicken breasts in strips twice.

Then I did a flash-fry in a ceramic pan with peanut oil for about 10-15 seconds to brown the coating. Believe me, that's all it takes! Then I put the strips on a parchment lined pan in a 325 degree oven for half an hour.

Perfectly juicy and really good. I have no pictures because we ate them hot out of the oven. This mix is just amazing. No more longing for kfc or eating **nuggets. these were much much better.

Served it with a kfc style coleslaw, it was delicious too.

Ouizoid - Just wanted to send you long overdue thanks for your ingenious BTF mix!!! My 17 year old DS and I have been JUDDDing (LC style) for a few months now and I make us each a chocolate BTF muffin every DD. What a lifesaver it's been!!

Wishing you much success in marketing this product!

Also, thanks to all you other lovely ladies for your tweaks of this recipe! I've experimented with a few and they've been great and I'm still dying to try your yellow cake recipe, Gina! Maybe this weekend! Many thanks for creating the recipe thread, too!

I have found that it is a bit more calories with almond flour added to the mix but it makes an incredible muffin. It just depends on the calories and taste/texture you are going for.

just want to vent for a minute and express my pain and disappointment over my attempts to market this. Evidently the guy I was working for MONTHS with has been fired, and probably was lying to me all along about his efforts to get this going ("I sent it to R&D and they take a long time"). I just copied my last email to the president of the firm and he let me know my contact had been fired and to send him my stuff, so I have to start from square one. I am mad!

That stinks!! All that time and effort and waiting for nothing. At least the president is going to work with you if he's having you send him your stuff. I'm sure this type of waiting game is frustrating for you, but then to have something like this happen is infuriating!

Sorry that happened to you Ouis.

Ouiz - how disappointing for you! Maybe the president of the company can find something that the other guy did and pick up from there - I hope he wasn't just stringing you along, that would really s--k! Hope things get moving more expeditiously.

OMG, disappointment is an understatement!! So sorry! I hope you send all the emails/responses you had with him. R&D does take a long time I'd think, especially with a food item.

Ouiz, sorry you are in this position after all the time and effort you have expended. We are all hoping things smooth out in your little project. (not so little)

Meanwhile, we all are keeping our test kitchens hot.

thanks for the support my friends. It is really a drag. If he doesn't come up with something, I don't know what I'll do. Maybe it will just be an LCF recipe and that is all. we shall see.

Well I hope all works out...but you are already a low carb legend with this mix...it would just be so convenient to have it all made up and ready to buy.

As much as I've loved it (and still do) and as versatile as it is, I would love to have a box of it ready to go.

this is such a wonderful and versatile flour. I am lucky that I always have all of the ingredients to make it on hand, being one of those low-carbers who has to try everything. But for anybody who wants convenience and doesn't want to have to buy a lot of exotic ingredients just to try a recipe, it would be so nice to be able to buy the flour all made up. Who knows, I would probably stop buying the individual ingredients myself if I could have this flour in a canister on my counter! I hope this project moves forward for you, Ouiz!

WOE: Thinking of trying NK
I feel your pain, Ouis! Manufacturing is a huge issue for those who develop products targeted to a relatively small customer base. Years ago, we manufactured a low-carb snack chip but had to give it up. For a while we were able to handle it with a small bakery, but it was very labor-intensive and thus ridiculously expensive. To make it more cost-effective meant having it mass-produced. We could not interest investors due to the small target market, and could not financially handle it on our own. A friend who developed excellent low-carb items that many in this group used in the past did find a manufacturer willing to handle her products, but continually ran into issues with production, because the company kept pushing her "small" orders to the back of the pile, creating lots of stress for her and problems for her customers. We here tend to be very focused on our low-carb foods and options and don't realize what a small market it is, which creates no end of problems with mass production. I hope whatever happens, it works for you! Your mix is an incredible gift to the LC community.

I thought I'd share with you my experiments.

First I was doing Garlic Chhese biscuits. I wanted the rise of the microwave, but a brown too.

So I tried the como cook on my convection microwave.

Results, no better than microwave, still needed toasting. But I did 6 at once on a turntable, so no one at a time.

I also tried a version of cornbread. My food processor wouldn't grind the popcorn, so I subbed a bunch, and it's ok. But a work in process.

Any help on grinding the popcorn, other than a dedicated coffee grinder?

I think the chicken lady used a grain mill or something to that affect. I know the popcorn can be hard of the coffee grinders.

I've made biscuits in te oven and they browned up really nice.

Hang in there Ouiz, this "has" to work as it is the only thing that works perfect for my Hi altitude, zero humidity area!!
My friends daughter did gourmet Baby food and it was an uphill battle, but she hung in there, and it finally worked out by going to "private" venture capitalists' with deep pockets....she started off at bazaar markets to prove it worked first.....now I don't know the ins and out of the food industry, maybe it is different for yours.
I do wish you much much success, that stuff of yours is "good"..--

Ouis, I don't know if this would help or not but you could always do a cookbook and see if that will get things rolling for you.
Another thing you could try is to look up other companies bake mixes on the market and write to them and ask for some advice.

Just a couple of ideas I thought of. If all else fails, there's always Shark Tank lol sorry I couldn't resist.

Seriously though, we are all rooting for you here!

I use baby corn in the can and grind it in my food processor. If that helps.

This is a hard road. I hope it gets better.
